    Thanks, Amanda, for your kind reception for "consolations." Speaking of nailing it, I listened yesterday to your reading of "Poem for a Poet.": Now that was nailed! both the poem and your delivery, really fine.

    Thank you for the read and comment, Amanda.

    Carl Santoro – Apr 01, 2014

    Thank you Amanda for visiting, A Child's Veil. I have been hoping more parents would be upfront with the truth and tell their kids like it really is, especially at an age where the child can make their own choice on how to go forward.

    Darryl Price – Mar 28, 2014

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the fav on Ice Ballet, Amanda. The trick is to stay in the mellow zone and out of the crazy/angry bitch zone. Ha!

    Charlotte H. – Oct 05, 2013

    Javed Hayat – Sep 29, 2013

    Hello Amanda

    Thank you for your wonderful comment on A Writer's Ramble. I'm so glad you liked it...

    You have also raised a very valid point regarding the closing line. Much appreciated.

    Deborah Oster Pannell – Sep 28, 2013

    Amanda, thanks for your comments on Scar... very gratifying, as I'm trying to move in all the directions you named... :)

    Han Kondabalu – Sep 20, 2013

    Thank you, Amanda for the wonderful and thoughtful comment on the rabbit micro/poem! You are so very kind and exquisitely generous. I will definitely write something more up to date in your honor without those blasted number! Pax, Amy

    David Ackley – Sep 19, 2013

    Thanks, Amanda, for reading and commenting on "Proximity." Nice to have your endorsement.

    Christian Bell – Sep 09, 2013

    Hi Amanda, thanks for reading Sliding Windows, and thanks for the comments, too. fos.

    Han Kondabalu – Aug 31, 2013

    Thank you Amanda for your thoughtful comment about the Handshake micro...you rock!!! :)

    J.A. Pak – Aug 23, 2013

    Thanks for commenting on Anchored Leaves. That was just what I was hoping for!

    Lillian Ann Slugocki – Aug 12, 2013

    Thank you.

    - Felicia

    Deborah Oster Pannell – Aug 02, 2013

    Thanks Amanda, for your comment and suggestion on "Encore." Interesting choices we make when trying to fulfill the requirements of a prompt. If I work this story further, I will definitely take another look at that first sentence!
    :)

    Charlotte H. – Jul 29, 2013

    Amanda, thanks for reading and commenting on "Blood or Kisses". I'm glad it worked for you!

    B. B. B. – Jul 29, 2013

    Amanda, I appreciate the comments on Pretend. Thank you.

    Elizabeth Kate Switaj – Jul 18, 2013

    Thank you for your comment on "Out of Uniform". I think the human is made up, in part at least, of objects and our relationships with them.

    Deborah Oster Pannell – Jul 03, 2013

    I never properly thanked you for sharing that music link at "So freaking tired." Excellent!
    :)

    Emily Bertholf – Jul 03, 2013

    Thank you for your comments and fave on Hero Song. I'm glad those lines resonated with you. They were hard to write at the time. Or easy to write, but hard to leave on the page. :-)

    Gary Hardaway – Jun 28, 2013

    Thank you, Amanda, for your kind response to "Saturday Housekeeping".

    Penny Goring – Jun 25, 2013

    yeses xx

    Barry Basden – Jun 23, 2013

    Thanks, Amanda, for letting me know you liked 'Breaking in Print.'

    Elizabeth Kate Switaj – Jun 21, 2013

    Thanks for your comment on Spinning. I've been reading a recent anthology of essays on the Eco-Ability Movement, and what you said about agency makes me think some of that is coming through in this series.

    Susan Rukeyser – Jun 21, 2013

    Thanks for your comments on 'The Worst Girl's Best Day' - I love that you felt you understood Gerry although you are anything but a 'big girl!'

    Hazem Tagiuri – Jun 20, 2013

    Thanks for the kind words on "Invoking Fire", Amanda!

    Miguel Lasala – Jun 14, 2013

    Thanks for the comments on "A Little Idea".

    Elizabeth Kate Switaj – Jun 13, 2013

    Thank you for your comment on "Toothed and Thorny". That piece, and "The Object of Desire" are part of sequence I'm working on of monologues from the perspective of things (which I'm defining as anything that would ordinarily take the pronoun "it).

    Also, since you're interested in Joyce, you might be interested in the project I'm facilitating at http://openjoyce.com/sites/opening-ulysses/

    Nonnie Augustine – Jun 10, 2013

    Thank you for reading and commenting on Michelle from Southport, Amanda. I think I live for comments sometimes. Which of your stories has the inhuman character?

    Larry Strattner – Jun 08, 2013

    Thanks for your comment on Becoming an Author. It looks like you're on your way.

    Paul Mahlum – Jun 07, 2013

    Thank you again for your comment on "Diving In." Writing that opening sentence was actually the last thing I did before posting it.

    Jerry Ratch – Jun 02, 2013

    Thank you, Amanda. Appreciate it!

    Eric Lloyd Blix – Jun 02, 2013

    Hi Amanda. Thanks for the kind words on "The Bedroom Seems like the World." I'm glad you liked it.

    Nonnie Augustine – May 24, 2013

    Thank you for your kind comments about My Great Uncle Jerry, Amanda. I tried writing that poem a dozen times before thinking of using the villanelle form. Nothing worked. Then, of course, the form made me crazy--so I really appreciate what you had to say!

    Nonnie Augustine – May 01, 2013

    Thank you for reading and commenting on The Most Beautiful Lady, Amanda.

    Darryl Price – Apr 11, 2013

    We dragons need to stick together, although we are rather solitary in our flight. Thank you so much for reading my poem, Don't Forgive Me. It's very much appreciated.

    Barry Basden – Apr 04, 2013

    Thanks, Amanda, for commenting on Wild Horses, though 'terribly, terribly clever' can be taken by me in terribly different ways. Music plays a part in many of my stories. I'm glad to see your interest in that connection, too.

    Roz Warren – Mar 28, 2013

    Amanda thanks for commenting on Dog Blog!

    Lillian Ann Slugocki – Mar 19, 2013

    Dear Amanda, thank you very much for your comment on Demon, much appreciated. I look forward to reading your work.

    Jerry Ratch – Mar 03, 2013

    Thank you, Amanda.

    Gloria Garfunkel – Feb 18, 2013

    Fish Eye: All really interesting and wise thoughts to ponder, the similarities and differences of skill-building and sustaining in all these arenas. Earlier in life I was a painter and found that taking breaks and just looking for awhile improved my work more than constant practice. There also may be stages in the development of an art or skill requiring more or less "doing."

    Gloria Garfunkel – Feb 09, 2013

    Thank you for your comment and validation on Amends.

    Janice D. Soderling – Feb 07, 2013

    Amanda, warm thanks for reading and commenting "What the heart is". Much appreciated. /Janice

    Gloria Garfunkel – Feb 02, 2013

    Very funny comment on Blogger.

    Joani Reese – Dec 28, 2012

    Amanda: Here is one of the most beautiful eulogies I have ever read. It was written for and about Rebecca. You will know this remarkable little girl a little better if you read it: http://www.panspermia.org/waters20010107.htm

    Gessy Alvarez – Dec 26, 2012

    Thank you for reading "Menthol." And welcome to Fictionaut!

    Gloria Garfunkel – Dec 25, 2012

    I really liked your comment on Snowflake. I don't think the Holocaust filtered down unless parent made strong efforts to do so. I was the opposite. I protected my children from knowing about it as long as possible.

    Gloria Garfunkel – Oct 12, 2012

    Dialogue stories are lots of fun. When I think about it, mine always involve two lovers and a possessive animal. Yes, of course it has a lot to do with Carver. I was just trying to give Con a hard time for pointing it out.

    Marcy Dermansky – Sep 02, 2012
